How to Wash Transitioning Hair - Longing 4 Length

Since starting a new job, I haven't had as much time to chat hair with you ladies and its been months since I caught up on my favorite hair blogs.  Thank goodness for the Senegalese twists I wore for the past several weeks; I thoroughly enjoyed how little maintenance they required.  Hopefully you enjoyed all that I shared regarding my twists (wash regimen, styles, how to moisturize, etc).  I took them down after about 7.5 weeks and my hair … [Read more...]

Side Part Sew In Weave - Longing 4 Length

Back with another sew-in tutorial, this time I am featuring a side part weave with leave out.  Today's model is my little cousin, Kyndra, who asked me to do her hair for graduation.  Believe it or not, this was K's first time having a side part weave - she normally does a center part.  I think both are equally beautiful, but there is a sultriness to a side part (especially if it covers one eye!) that gives it an extra sexy factor.  Since K is … [Read more...]
